  • Phillips and Fischer are headed...

    As expected, the Class 2-A, Region Three cross-country meet Saturday at McNeely Lake Park was the toughest region in Class 2-A, and one of the toughest in the entire state. Henry County’s Cassey Fischer and Eric Phillips escaped out.

  • Teams play at home

    When teams across Kentucky open the football state playoffs this weekend, both schools in Henry County will be playing at home for the first time. Yes, I will be going back and forth between the two games. And yes, I am definitely excited.

  • Wildcats enter postseason at 8-2

    It wasn’t their prettiest football outing this season, but the Henry County Wildcats were able to pull away from Gallatin County during the second half on Friday night to earn a 39-0 victory and end the regular season with an impressive 8-2 record.

    The Wildcats, who won the District Four title, have the third best record in Class 3-A behind Somerset and Mason County at 10-0 each, and will host Moore in the first round of the state playoffs this Friday night. If the Cats win, they will be at home again the following weekend against either North Oldham or Shawnee.

  • Warriors try for first 11-man...

    The team Steve Frommeyer calls the most improved squad in his 30-plus years of coaching football will take to the field this Friday night in an attempt to win Eminence High School’s first 11-man playoff game.

  • EHS shifts focus to Region 5

    After racing at the Meet of Champions at Masterson Station Park in Lexington on Saturday, the Eminence cross-country team has shifted its focus to the all-important Class A Region 5 Championship.

    The regional meet, which will be held at the Trimble County Park this Saturday, has been the one race the Warriors have been aiming towards all season. In their final build-up race, they competed alongside thousands of runners in Lexington at the annual Meet of Champions. It’s one of the largest cross-country meets in Kentucky with more than 10 separate races.

  • HC JV wins football conference...

    While the Henry County High School varsity football team has been on a roll to finish the regular season at 8-2 and win the Class 3-A District Four title, the junior varsity squad has been equally impressive.

    The younger players had a 6-1 record this season and won the conference championship on Oct. 24 with an 8-0 victory over Grant County in the finals. The JV program is making that transition from middle school to varsity much easier. Ray Isaacs is the team’s head coach and coaches defense; Cliff Dawson coaches offense. There were 21 freshmen and seven sophomores.

  • HC preps for tough Region 3...

    Shortly after running two miles close to 100-percent on Monday afternoon at practice, the Henry County cross-country runners toed the starting line again for one mile all out. Minutes later, they sprinted past coach Greg Woods one by one to complete their final tough workout of the season.

  • Searching for the missing link

    There is something that just doesn’t feel right about this school year. So far, I’ve covered every type of game. I’ve covered wins. I’ve covered losses. I’ve covered nail biters. I’ve covered blowouts. By now, I’ve interviewed coaches hundreds of times, talked to players and written too many stories to keep count. Until Saturday night, I couldn’t put my finger on that something that is missing. Now I can.

  • Title IX public forum

    Henry County High School will host a 30-minute Title IX Public Comment Session this Thursday in the HCHS office from 5 p.m. until 5:30. Everyone in the community is eligible to attend the public forum to discuss matters related to equal rights in athletics. For more information, contact the high school at (502) 845-8670.

  • HC Cats will be back to DeSales...

    Cassey Fischer placed fifth in the girls’ varsity race, Eric Phillips placed 14th in the boys’ varsity race and the Henry County Cats got the opportunity to test out the same course their regional championship will use two weeks later.
